Favorite Movie Tuesday

This weeks' movie pick is

This movie was released on Valentines Day 2004. I don't know this because I looked it up but because it was the first movie Rusty & I saw together when we first began dating (I'm a total softy, I know). Ha ha, I think I might even have the ticket stubs in an old wallet somewhere in the closet.

After watching this movie it easily became one of my all time favorites & not just because it'll always be 'our' movie, it's actually a really cute love story. I've always loved
Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore & they're even better together (I adore The Wedding Singer). They have really good movie chemistry going on, like Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers (shame on you if you don't know who they are).

Oh yeah, back to the movie...I don't think there's any part of this movie that I disliked. Usually there will be some parts of a movie that are like 'ugh, I'm over it', but not in this one. I love that no matter what he keeps trying to get her to fall in love with him again. There are a lot of funny scenes in this movie but I almost peed my pants when Henry (Adam Sandler) has his friend Ula (Rob Schneider) pretend to beat him up on the side of the road while Lucy (Drew Barrymore) drives by. She actually stops, grabs a metal baseball out of her car & beats the crap out of Ula. It's hilarious!

And, like all great love stories...the best part of the movie is the ending. I seriously <3 this movie!

Movie Trivia:
  • The neurological condition that Lucy suffers from, Goldfield Syndrome, is entirely fictional.
  • Originally entitled "50 First Kisses"
  • The Cafe that they keep meeting at is actually a house they fixed up for the movie.
  • In an early scene a dentist and a woman in the dentist's chair are seen talking with each other. The woman playing the dentist is Jackie Sandler, Adam Sandler's wife. And the woman in the chair is played by Linda Segal, director Peter Segal's wife, who actually is a dentist in real life.
  • The original script set the movie in Seattle, the hometown of scriptwriter George Wing.
